If you are leaving a package for another student in that residence hall, then yes, please give it to the Mail Clerk on duty.
If you are leaving a package to be picked up or returned to an outside sender, then no, the mailrooms do not accept packages to be sent out. Please contact the carrier directly to arrange for a pickup when you are available in your room.
University Residential Life strongly discourages this method of advertising, as it is not effective, and recipients of bulk mailing either throw the advertisements away in the trash or on the floor outside of the mailrooms, at which point it is not fair to the housekeepers to clean them up.
If you are interested in a limited bulk mailing, the best way to do this is to address each piece of mail to its intended recipient, bundle it in room order, and drop it in campus mail. All other bulk mailings not addressed to intended recipients must be approved 2 weeks in advance by the Mailroom Coordinator, and must be from a registered student group, be of appropriate content (not advertising any policy violations, for example), and have clearly designated contact information on the flyer itself.
